If your injury is of a serious nature, or if your recovery doesn’t go as expected, you’ll be assigned to a case management team. The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) uses teams to help workers whose injuries require working with the WCB for more than two weeks. All people who live in a certain area of the province will work with the same case management team. This provides better service because all team members can work together on your recovery. They can also co-ordinate recovery and return-to-work plans with your employer and care provider.

    Once you’ve been assigned to a case management team, you’ll be given the name of your case manager and their contact information. Your case manager and the rest of the team will work with you and your employer. Case management teams manage medical and vocational services to help workers recover. These services include:

    • Early intervention programs that access medical and vocational services for you.
    • Return-to-work plans in the workplace that help you and your employer as you return to work.
    • Referral to a vocational rehabilitation specialist for a personal care assessment, should you need personal care.
